gigrin farm is the one place any birder should visit once,its not a reserve but just one persons vision to bring masses of red kites to the people.
a 3 hour drive for an hours worth of photography! worth it? YES

Amazing. Shots like that would be worth a 6 hr drive.

Great photos Darrell - the Black Kite must have been a good incentive. We went there 3/4 years ago - in August and well over 100 Red Kites there in the summer, guess there will be a lot more in winter. Fantastic place to go.

Stunning shots Darrell.

That one of the Red Kite with the meat in its gob is the best photo I've seen in my life. I bet you could flog them to magazines.
